In case you just won the lottery ...


The Grill at the Setai (not to be confused with the Restaurant at the Setai), which had briefly closed down over the summer and then recently reopened with a new menu (which, I will note, looks mighty tempting), is offering a seven course "Black Truffle Tasting Menu" for the jaw-dropping price of $360 (edited to add: per couple). What you'll get for that sum:

Seven Course Tasting Menu

Truffled Scrambled Eggs
Toasted Brioche
…………………
Truffle Foie Gras
Confit Duck, Haricot Vert, Mache
Truffle Vinaigrette
…………………
Maine Scallops, Black Truffle
Iberico Ham, Baked in Puff Pastry
Truffle Butter
…………………
Serrano Ham Consommé Tagliatelle
Slow Cooked Hen Egg
Shaved Alba Truffle
…………………
Black Truffle Risotto, Parmesan Foam
White Truffle Ice Cream
……………………
Surf & Turf
2 oz. Kobe Tenderloin, Seared Langoustine, Cauliflower
Black Truffle, White Truffle
……………………
Apple Tart Tatin, Green Apple Sorbet
Black Truffle Crème Fraîche

If you're not quite rolling in that kind of cash, but still have a hankering for the fungus, you can also add shaved truffle to any dish on the a la carte menu ($6.50 / gram for black truffle and $21 / gram for white truffle).

  1. That is per couple. I will clarify. Slightly less extreme, but still pretty darn pricey.

  2. I would think too much of a good thing. Every dish having truffle. By end of night will it be a special taste?

  3. EAT the rich!

    I couldn't eat that much truffle, it's too strong of a taste. One dish would be enough for me.
